Alliance Française de Brisbane
Alliance française de Brisbane teaches 12-14 year old Pre-teens (Les Pré-Ados) and 15-17 year old Teenagers (Les Ados).
The format of the classes is as follows:
- 1 hour 15 minutes per week for 8 weeks (10 hours per term)
- 10 children maximum
Pre-teens will start French and be able to learn the language through a structured progression offering 12 levels over 3 years. Our primary goal is to give teens enough confidence to cope with real life situations. Therefore, the focus in these classes are on activities that maximise opportunities to use French in a conversational way. This is achieved through meaningful exercises, such as creative role-plays, simulations, surveys, projects, discussions and task based activities.
Teens who already study French at school will be able to boost their learning and achieve the best results. They will be gathered into Y10, Y11 and Y12 groups.
Our teachers who know the Australian curriculum will help the students overcome their difficulties and extend their knowledge.
